Schotia Safaris is the oldest private game viewing reserve
in the Eastern Cape, bordering the eastern side of Addo Elephant National Park.
This malaria free
reserve is probably the most densely stocked reserve in Africa, and with over
40 mammal species and can consistently offer good game viewing throughout the
year. Schotia was the first reserve in the Cape Province to have free roaming
lions and we can almost guarantee sightings of these magnificent animals on
every Tooth & Claw game drive.
Schotia has a huge open air lapa, reputedly among the
largest in South Africa. It has reed and sneeze wood walls and is open to the
African skies, except for the outer ring where a traditionally thatched roof
covers the dining tables and bar area. Inside the lapa there are several large
‘Schotia’ trees and a roaring log fire. Dinner is usually a mix of safari
cuisine and traditional South African cooking; the exact menu depends on what
is available on the day.(Vegetarian friendly too)
